Saturday Morning Sculpture – with Jock Ireland

Spring 2020

Course Description

The Saturday sculpture class is an old-fashioned Studio School class. Students work in clay from a live model—a different model each week. Sidney Geist, the first Studio School dean, used to say a week is just long enough to forget completely what you were doing the week before. With that in mind, everyone in the class COMPLETES at least one sculpture each week: projects don’t carry over from one week to the next. The class might include absolute beginners or experienced artists who, for one reason or another, want to take advantage of the opportunity to work in the school’s wonderful clay studio. The teacher is happy to give beginners whatever attention they need. He’s also happy to leave experienced artists alone.
